How about five months

if you're having a good time and you're clicking with the folk. then why change n e thing? especially if u have enough time to see what you want to see within the country.

o so staying at a hostel iam thinking would be cheaper than renting an apartment. are u allowed to stay as long as u want?

Graf.

In the popular parts of Australia you'll find that there is a 2 week maximum stay allowed. This helps the hostel turn more customers over and keeps it from turning into bedsits/half way houses. But there are hostels that allow stays a lot lot longer.

Its easy to become distracted because you're away from home and maybe you've met a group of people with similar interest or that remind you from home. This is fine but remember you want to discover new people with different practices/views.

hope this helps
